SEGA, the worldwide known gaming icon we all remember for Sonic and his colleagues, has just announced their launching of a progressive slots-based mobile casino with their old-school console games and characters included.
The new SEGA slots will feature Sonic the Hedgehog, Golden Axe, Super Monkey Ball, Shinobi, Samba De Amigo. All of them will be incorporated and twisted into casino-style slot games. SEGA will cooperate with Fox Club Games on the project and their mobile application, SEGA Slots is available for both Android and Apple users.
The app will launch with an initial eight unlockable slot machines, each of which offers players a number of ways to win via bonus games. Each also comes with bonus rounds that reflect the gameplay of the original titles. Following launch, additional machines with fresh content will be added regularly to keep players winning and spinning in new and exciting ways. In the Sonic slot, players have to help the hedgehog rescue his friends to win huge payouts. Users can also play with their friends in the Super Monkey Ball Slots’ multiplayer mode to win “banana bonuses”
SEGA is currently going both forward and backward, having in mind that the company already operated as a standalone slot production company. It started in Japan in the 50s, only to switch to the arcade and console gaming industry in the 80s to go back to slots in the 2010s.
In the 2000s switched again from a console manufacturer to a third-party gaming software provider.
Since 2009, the division in SEGA responsible for the mobile games has been based with their headquarters in San Francisco and the studios amongst which, Hardlight Studio in Europe and Demiurge Studios & Ignited Artists in the US.
SEGA held a press on the matter stating the following:
“SEGA Networks, Inc. launches SEGA Slots, the progression-based casino app showcasing characters from your favorite SEGA® games, for mobile devices. Harkening back to SEGA’s inception as a producer of standalone slot machines in the 1950’s, SEGA Slots celebrates the company’s history, while embracing a new genre of a mobile experience. It is now available to download for free with in-app purchase from the App Store for iPhone and iPad or Google Play Store for Android devices.
